You see, dear reader, my mindís a bowl
Full of words Iíve cut from real life,
All jumbled. When I want to write
I shake it and pick a handful-
Lay them on the table, arrange
Them so they make a lick of sense.
More often than not theyíre nonsense.
At times they can be downright strange.

But I hold out hope for when theyíre
Something so beautiful I stare
In disbelief that I made it.
Iíd blush to take the credit.
These are the times Iím glad to be
A poet, though thereís no money,
Or fame or sex involved in it.
I get enough of that as is.

Bravo! Some times many a time. We find our self part of, or a witness to unfolding story. We as writers, roll is to '' snap shot'' a work out in words. As like seeing something, wiping out our phones, catching the site! WE poets catch it in a few words!
